Save dying computer

My computer has some problems. I’m trying to save the files and hopefully the computer too.

So it’s a ubuntu 18.04 LTS. It stucks at the purple booting screen and cannot proceed. But it can boot in recovery mode. The files seem to be all still there. “fsck” shows that “/etc/default/rcS no such file or directory”.

How do I:
1. back up all the files without GUI? (preferrably without usb disk)?
2. fix the computer?
